PASTAI – CPD Session 18/1/2022

Many thanks to those who attended yesterday’s CPD session, particularly for the thoughtful questions at the end. Sorry I don’t have more answers to the many ‘known unknowns’ of our course…

Find below the resources the I had worked on for the session. I’ll upload them here in MS Word and PDF format so that you can tinker with them to best suit your own needs. I’m also including a few links to earlier posts from previous CPD sessions (which I am terrible at archiving – sorry) that might be helpful. I’ve updated some of them recently, so hopefully they’ll be a little bit more focused. https://polsocpodcast.com/2021/11/15/teachmeet-essay-writing-resources-for-pol-soc-teachers/

The final thing is a link to the Google Form questionnaire on Teachers’ Experiences of Pol Soc that I’m working on as a research project. If people had the chance, and haven’t yet done so, I’d really appreciate the time (less than 10 mins) that teachers could give to complete it: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1JHxHs4pSr–vuiU4RwccGYrhcG2nkhN6O8IuBhUCRtE/edit#responses
